Looks like Taj, Stockwell and Stanley are all still listed as questionable. Anyone have any additional information on the injury situation? If I recall, Stockwell tried to go against NAU. I would think he would try to go again after an additional 3 weeks off.

Praying all 3 are healthy enough to go. Would be great to see!

Richmond fan here.  We expect a great game this Saturday.  UND is favored for a reason- you are a class team playing in a very good league.  Feel free to visit us at Spidernation.com.

Well, it will be unfortunate if it is not sold out.  Those kids deserve that.  This team has come a long ways.

I don't think they are.  His notes on the Richmond web site tell people to Fly to Fargo and party with them and their 30,000 fans Friday night and they won't have to pay for food and drinks the whole

I like Taj - he's had his ups and downs - dang he's a real stud that's had bad luck with injuries but stuck it out through it all - I would really like to see him out there.

Things beginning to boil among UR faithful regarding administration to make any comment about Rocco's contract extension.  Our AD is perceived as weak by many and his performance seems to justify the perception.  With no hard evidence, this must affect team.

That isn't good.  He has done a pretty damn good job at Richmond, right?

Just watched the Richmond game from last weekend....their qb has a little Vernon Adams esq to him.   Dangerous looking dude.

You guys seem exceptionally excited about this contest. I've counted every bit of 4 posts in the last 2 days on this board. Is there another board where you guys discuss your football games? If so, please provide me with a link so that I can find out what your fans are thinking about the game.

If I am mistaken and this is your major football message board, it appears that you think your win this Saturday is a given and are not wasting your time in discussing an obvious fait accompli. I get that. I do. But a few Spiders feel a little differently. Some of them actually believe that there is an outside chance that we could win. Given, our chance of such an upset would be of such a stupendous nature that it would undoubted warrant a special section of ESPN's Sports Center. Nevertheless, such incredible upsets have occurred in other events throughout history. One may have to go back a hundred years or more to find an upset of the same proportion as that of us beating you this Saturday, but upsets of such enormity have occurred throughout history, even though on very rare and in few and far between occasions. We know that any chance of our upsetting you is extremely remote. Every player and coach on our team is painfully aware of the almost certain outcome of the game., i.e., an overwhelming and devastating beatdown by the Fighting Hawks, and we appreciate the extreme prowess and ferocity of your team. In truth, it sort of scares us a tad. We have already lost many of our major football participants to injuries this year and though a loss will end our season, we do not want to walk away with several more. Next thing you know the NCAA will be investigating the standards of our school and coaches because of the inordinate number of injuries and try to discover whether they are based upon the type of player we recruit or the regimen we put them through once on the team. More importantly, however, is the fact that our players are important to us and we are afraid that the thrashing you obviously expect to inflict upon us may result in an extremely large and unaccountable number of additional injuries. But that is not your concern, and we have already addressed the potential of such an occurrence by counseling our players how to handle situations when an imminent hit by one of your bruisers is about to occur.  I cannot provide you with the particulars, that would be unethical, but I do not want you to be surprised or appear bewildered when our players ostensibly fall down untouched in their own backfield or when our receivers miss passes perfectly thrown right into their hands. Enough said. You know they will receive pre-game counseling about injuries. Let your imagination take it from there. 

Yet, as much as a part of me cries out in denial, we remain creatures susceptible to human failings and we all know that hope springs eternal, especially by some on our board, and they continue to engage in discussions and interchanges about the possibility, however remote, of our upending the Fighting Hawks. I know. I know. What a preposterous dream. At times, my reason kicks in and I wholeheartedly agree. How utterly arrogant and disrespectful of us. Like I said, I know.  Yet despite this knowledge, from time to time human nature overtakes my reason and the dream appears again. I will admit, as we approach game day, the dream appears with less frequency and intensity. So I should be ok despite the annihilation of our team on Saturday by the Fighting Hawks. 

But I have strayed off track.  To my original point, on our football board, there have been well over 200 posts on ten different but related topics relating to this game in just the last 3 days.  In fact, there has been 10 times more discussion about the game on our board between one of your posters and an NDSU troll in the last 2 days than in the last 4 days on this board.  You are a public institution of around 15,000 students with a proud football tradition, albeit in large part in Div. II.  Still, no small accomplishment.  You have a wonderful stadium of which you are rightfully proud. We are a small liberal arts school, privately funded, with an undergraduate student population of less than 3,000. We are also on the road half way across the country. Yet the discussion on our board is not letting up.  So I know that something is amiss. I am looking for the inevitable lively discussion which takes place this time of year about an upcoming playoff game. 

Like I said above, I strongly suspect it may be that I am on the wrong board. If that is the case, would someone please provide me with a link to the message board which is engaged in a discussion regarding the upcoming FCS playoff game between you guys and us Spiders?  If so, I will be forever in your debt.  

Thanks.

Wow iSpider....you really need to get your panties out of a bunch.  I honestly couldn't read all that, just skimmed it but got the gist.  For whatever reason the "Attendance" thread has taken over all of  the talk/excitement.  Well over 125 posts in the past day or so.  Usually there is much more specific talk about the game, but for whatever reason everybody got so concerned about turnout that we have been talking about that WAY more than normal.  It's not that we think this game is a cake walk and it's a given we are going to win, it's going to be a tough game.  People on our board have been calling in and buying tickets to give away to students so we can get more at the game.  I know one of your posters was wondering if our arena would get as loud as a pig squealing.......you know making fun.  It's our first playoff game and we are very excited about it, but hey we are just dumb North Dakotan's we are not nearly as cool as you guys.  I'm sure you guys can talk smart football so much better than we can.  We bow down to you.

Just trying to stir up some interest in the game. It never occurred to me to look at the Attendance Board.

Not really making fun. Not in the least. Mere playful banter. Repartee, if you will. 

Not to worry, I have seen the NDSU trolls attacking your program on our board. I come playfully, but with a sense of sarcasm intended as humor. The NDSU guys on our board are like a group of Piranha. I am nothing like that.

I view my posts as typical playful banter and expect the same in return. Nothing like a good exchange of well-meaning rapier wit by fans of opposing schools to enliven the anticipation of a good football game. It's the aqua vitae of sports message boards. 

I respect your program and will cheer for you all the way to the NC should you beat us.
